vicmale replied to the topic 'Hohner CX12 Jazz Harmonica' in the forum. 14 minutes ago

Hello Swaban

I forgot to say that the Suzuki SCX (all models) are cross slide. The Suzuki Sirius 56 has a straight and a crosslide.
Generally, crosslide is supposed to give more volume to the tone due to the more large holes.

Hello

I am absolutely sure that this is so. I have a CX12 and it is crosslide. I also have a Seydel Saxony which is straight slide.
You can see this on the front of the mouthpiece. The CX12 has the first, third, fifth hole open in the upper section when the slide is out send, fourth, sixth hole open in the lower, etc. Vice versa when the slide is in.
On the Seydel all holes are open in the upper section and closed in the lower section when the slide is out.
I think that the CX12 is great instrument with a lot of volume and maintenance is easy. It is very responsive also in the lowest holes.

Regards
Vicmale

Thanks Marcy, the main problem with tab is that it gives you no indication of how long the notes are.

I'll give these a try as I'd like to improve my ability to pick up tunes by ear, often in a session you'll hear a tune and no one, not even the chap playing it will know what it's called, either that or he's got a different name to everyone else :)

It seems to be coming easier on the harmonica then it does on the mandolin for some reason, I have got Howard's first four tunes without much trouble, maybe I knew them pretty well anyway.

Hi. Vicmale, are you telling about SCX12 of Suzuki or Cx12 is a different model? If same, are you sure of its cross slide?

Then I have to rethink of it.

I really like my Easttop chromatic .
Very SCX-like in size and the rounded comfortable mouthpiece, and phos-bronze reeds. It is airtight and easy to play, soft or loud.
I got it early on before they started putting in the stronger mouthpiece screws, but they retrofit it for me. NewHarmonica has awesome customer service.
Easttop really seems to be putting in some effort to make a quality product and overcome the "made in China" low quality reputation.
I would not hesitate to get another. Plus the two dealers that cary them in the US (Rockin Ron, and New Harmonica) are easy to deal with and have great customer service.

Easttop harmonicas are coming up in the world. Rockin Ron is now carrying them. I have the T008S and I really like it. Until Rockin Ron started carrying them they were only available from newharmonica.com and they still are. In fact newharmonica.com has quite a selection of diatonic and chromatic. I have the T008S and really like it. Have any of you tried one yet?

Thanks so much for the music Erk!
Jeremy, I think you’re right about tab often having mistakes online. I don’t like learning a tune from tab at all. You might prefer to learn along with one of these slower videos. That’s what I like to do anyway. Both are in the key of G, so you’d use your G harp. Hope it helps.

Thanks, that's very kind.

I had got as far as tonic sol-fa (do, re, mi &c.) but scale degrees are probably a better twist on the same theme.

jeremyh,

While it is true that the notes on each hole are different for each harmonica you don't have to be concerned with that if you can teach yourself to think in, "scale degrees", instead of notes.

If you aren't familiar with the idea of SD what you are doing is assigning a number, (1-7), to each note and it doesn't matter what key you are in.

Scale Degree: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
key of C: C D E F G A B
key of G: G A B C D E F#
key of E: E F# G# A B C# D#

As you can see your 4 blow will always be a "1" regardless of the key you are in.

Here is a link with the Wabash Cannonball tabbed out using SD.

Maybe this will be of some help to you.

I think the problem is firefox gets updates quite regularly, which means the flash plug in gets out of date quickly. It is annoying though.
